  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 8 boneless chicken thighs (trimmed of fat)
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 brown onions (peeled and diced)
  • 3 cloves of garlic (peeled and minced)
  • 3 tbsp plain/all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp celery salt
  • 2 cups (480ml) chicken stock
  • 1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 16 – 20 baby chestnut mushrooms
  • 16 – 20 chantenay carrots
  • 3 sticks of celery (roughly chopped)
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) double or heavy cream
  • small bunch of parsley (chopped)


Step 1

Add 2 tbsp of vegetable oil to a large frying pan over medium to high heat. Add the chicken thighs and cook until lightly brown on both sides (about 5 minutes). After 5 minutes, remove the chicken from the pan and place them in the slow cooker. Next, melt 2 tbsp of unsalted butter in the same pan. Add the diced onions and cook for about 5 minutes. Add the minced garlic and stir them together for another minute. Stir in 3 tbsp of all-purpose flour, 1 tsp each of salt, black pepper, dried thyme, and 1/2 tsp of celery salt. Cook them for about 2 minutes.

Step 2

After 2 minutes, pour in 2 cups of chicken stock and 1 tbsp of freshly squeezed lemon juice. Stir all together and bring to a boil. Turn off the heat and pour the mixture into the slow cooker over the chicken thighs. For the veggies, add 16 baby chestnut mushrooms, 16 chantenay carrots, and 3 sticks of roughly chopped celery into the slow cooker. Stir them and place the lid on. You can cook it on low heat for 5 to 6 hours or at high heat for 4 hours. Alternatively, you can cook it in the oven in a lidded casserole dish at 350 degrees F for 45 to 60 minutes. Once cooked, turn off the heat and stir in 1/4 cup of double or heavy cream. Serve with a sprinkle of fresh parsley.
